Still don't want to talk about your tax-exempt status, Mike?

Apparently not, but it seems "Father" Pfleger is getting a little sensitive about all us nasty gun people calling him out on his terroristic threats.

Response to I.S.R.A. Attack

On Tuesday, May 29, 2007 The Illinois State Rifle Association released a press statement titled, "Chicago Priest Call for Murder of Gun Shop Owner".

This is not only a lie, it is absurd! On Saturday, May 26, 2007 at an anti-gun rally at Chuck's Gun Shop, I said that John Riggio of Chuck's Gun Shop had the business listed in a trust, so that you could not find out who he is or where he lived, but that we would find it out and that we would snuff him out, as well as legislators who are being bankrolled by the N.R.A. and fighting common sense gun legislation.

All the news media were there, as well as about 400 people and heard the whole speech. It is interesting to me that no one took this interpretation of the words I spoke, not the media or any of the 400 people present until Tuesday, when the I.S.R.A. sent out a press release with their propaganda.

I am a student of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and have always and will always preach non-violence. I am insulted by this character assassination, but not surprised. The tactic is to divert the attention off the real issue,easy access to guns and turn it on me.

It will not work!!!

Rev. Dr. Michael L. Pfleger,

Faith Community of Saint Sabina
I cannot help but notice that his "explanation" of what he said doesn't sound any less threatening than the original hate speech did. He still says that they're going to find out where Riggio lives, and snuff him out. At his little orchestrated mob scene in front of Chuck's he even spelled out Riggio's name, as if to make it easier for a would-be murderer to find him.

Mr. Riggio and his family are presumably unable to afford bodyguards, and so if any of Pfleger's pflock decides to carry out Pfleger's call to snuff Riggio out, he's on his own. Interestingly enough, though--the situation is different for Pfleger himself.
The Armorbearers Ministry consists of a group of God-called men who are responsible for protecting the anointing and the pastoral mantle that rests upon Reverend Michael L. Pfleger. This is accomplished through consistent prayer, fasting and personal assistance. The Armorbearers share an individual and collective desire to lay down their lives for the life of another, namely Pastor Pfleger. These men assist Pastor Pfleger on Sundays and also travel with him extensively throughout the year.
So, it would seem that this "priest of God" has a personal coterie of (fanatically?) devoted bodyguards willing to die for him.

The more I hear about this Pfleger, the less willing I would be to accept a glass of Kool-Aid from him.

He lies! We got him on tape, and we don't for a second believe he didn't know what "snuff out" means. He's also as stupid as Satan, the father of lies, is smart.

But then, he's a member of the Pederast Mafia, so what do we expect?

Oh, yeah. He's stupid because he's inciting his presumably unarmed thugs to attack a presumably well-armed man.

But can we presume that his thugs are unarmed? Sure, their being armed would be illegal (like Pfleger's illegal gun buy-backs, and his vandalism--which he never denied doing). Sure, it would be the height of hypocrisy (like death threats from a priest, as part of an "anti-violence" movement).

I don't know that we can eliminate any possibility from that bunch.

Good point, 45.

Fuck him and, unfortunately, the little boy he rode in on.

Do you think there might be a reason he doesn't want children's parents armed?
